A pottery template is useful in hand building when you want to make several items the same size and/or shape. The files below are pre-built templates that are free for use. Download the zip file and extract. Print the PDF file(s) on a normal printer at 100% (or actual size) and cut out the basic pottery patterns. See assembly instructions for larger template sizes that cross multiple pages.
